Cryptic hasn't revamped any preorder items so I don't see why they would revamp this rifle.

So the rifle doesn't level, it just does more damage? I'm confused. I'm a VA, but this is still my 1st MMO. What is DPS?

All the little tiny little things you experienced players know, it's still way over my head. haha

It doesn't level, but the damage has been increased? Doesn't that make it very overpowered at low levels?

No because all aspects of ground combat have been changed. The damage has been scalled to work with the mobs at that lvl because hitpoints have also been adjusted.

So the question remains. Is it worth using now at VA levels?

Will it have no mk icon on it, or the infinity logo, or still the III?

It is a lower rank item it does not scale up with you.

I hear tac officers who put skill points into helping that type of weapon have extended the use but I am not familiar with the details.

Yes. Currently on Tribble, the TR-116 is the most effective weapon against the Borg, if for no other reason than they can't adapt to it.

While we're talking about testing this on Tribble...

Does it still fire through walls in Shooter mode? Would be nice, if a little specific, to allow the crouched shooter reticule peek through terrain in a similar way to the show.

yes, it fires through walls , but only if you can get a lock on the target beforehand. You can't "see" through walls like they could on the DS9 episode.
